New Delhi: Team of neurosurgeons from the department of Neurosurgery at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, have developed first ever endoscopic classification of pediatric posterior fossa cysts also known as Dandy-Walker Syndrome, DWS, in children younger than 5 years.

DWS is characterized by underdevelopment of the middle part of the cerebellum known as the cerebellar vermis, cystic enlargement of the 4th ventricle– a space around the cerebellum that channels fluid from inside to around the outside of the brain, and enlargement of the base of the skull (posterior fossa). Individuals with this condition, often face problems with movement, coordination, intellect, mood, and other neurological functions.

Fathering children by assisted reproduction may increase risk of prostate cancer: BMJ.
